Windows 7: Asus HD 5450 1GB GDDR3 DVI VGA HDMI and 3 monitors

Asus HD 5450 1GB GDDR3 DVI VGA HDMI and 3 monitors

Hi Guys,
I recently purchased Asus HD 5450 1GB GDDR3 DVI VGA HDMI for my new machine that has Windows 7 64 bit. I got this graphics card thinking that I could have my two monitors and my tv connected, using all three ports. However, i have since found out that this cannot be done. I can have all 3 connected but i have to disable one monitor or my tv. My question is, what else do I need to buy to get the 3rd display working. I don't fancy buying another graphics card to be honest.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Basically another graphics card. You could try a DVI splitter, but I don't know if they can do anything besides clone it.

To run 3 monitors off of one card you need an HD 5xxx series card with a displayport on it and supports Eyefinity. Unfortunately your 5450 isn't one of them.

P.S. Filling out your system specs would help. If you have an AMD based motherboard with integrated video, then you won't need another card and can use the onboard with the 5450 to run up to 4 monitors.
